PLEASURES ARE THE CAUSES. |
Dr. E. (\ Branson, of the Entension
Dei>artment of the University of North ,
Carolina, has made an extensive study of .
farm conditions in North Carolina, other ]
States in the Union and in foreign I
countries. He knows these conditions t
as well as any man in the South, per- j
haps, and it is startling to read some fig- j
ures he has made public.
Dr. Branson says there are 1.241.000 j
citizens in the State "who do not own a <
single foot of ground they cultivate, nor i
a single shingle of the roof over their 1
heads.” Dr. Branson rightly contends '
that the matter is a very serious one, and j
it is little less than shocking to see .
comparisons made between farmers in ,
this and other countries in the matter of i
Dr. Branson's interpretation of this >
condition is interesting. Touching upon 1
the reason that so many of the people of
this State are under the yoke of tenant
ry. he says:
"The feeling for the essential power of
thrift is largely lacking among the Am- ■
erican people today. They see their im- j
mediate needs and forget that they should
he willing to forego them in view of more
permanent things. The average Ameri- |
can sees wliat he wants and gets it.
whether it be bread, bonnets or paregor- :
: e. It is from this widespread lack of :
thrift that bur own problem of farm and 1
home ownership arises.”
The Charlotte News says Dr. Brunson
is right in his deductions and the Char- (
lotte contemporary sums the whole thing
up with the statement that our people do
not own their farms because they do not
care whether they own them or not. In
difference and satisfaction with tenantry
are causes, but pteastfte conies first.
The News says: “A vast number of
these more than 1.200.000 of our people
who are shiftless and homeless and land
less are in that condition because they
don't care, because they are not ambitious
to get out of it and because they ure cen
tering their interests, labors, affections 1
and determinations upon other things far ;
less important and far less contributory I
to tlieir worthiness as citizens."
Too, many people are letting pleasure
interfere with other activities. They do j
not buy farms because they take all of j
their money for amusements. They want 1
automobiles and luxuries and so long as J
they are in that frame of mind they do I
not care whether they ever have any land!
of their own.

Western North Carolina is attracting
thousands of visitors at present, and in
almost every instance where jieople are t
making the trip for the first time they
are amazed with what they see. That is
true also, of some North Carolbiians who
have been out of the State for a number
of years and are coming back for a va

good roads of the State are giving the
tourists a chance to visit parts of the
State he was afraid to visit before, and
the splendid of these parts is as grand as

that have been opened up only during the

their crowds in the future, at the same

OF BRYAN DURING 1915
Difficulty Arose Over Note to Austria
Which President Wilson Altered.
Portland. Ore.. July 28.—Milton A.
Miller, of Portland, an intimate friend
of the late William Jennings Bryan, to
day gave an account that Bryan told
him in 1920 of why he happened to quit
the.cabinet of President Wilson. It has ,
notliing to do with the President's note*
to Germany, as dispatches have reported,
Miller said Mr. Brown told hint the
l nited States was having trouble with
Austria during the summer of 1915 and !
it was thought the Austrian embassy
was plotting with the German war of
fice to cripple American plants. Mr.
Bryan prepared a note which Mr. Wil
son approved and Bryan sent it to the .
cable office after delivering a ropy to
the Austrian ambassador. Dr. Konstantin
Theodor Dumba, with the statement that
the note to Austria would be sent Pile t
same as the copy Dr. Dumba received.
A few days later Dr. Dumba called !
at the state department in an angry .
mood and said the note as received by |
his government was different from that
be bad received from Mr. Brvan.
Later, Mr. Bryan got the original copy
from the cable office and he is quoted
as saying "to my mortification 1 found
President Wilson had obtained the copy
from the cable office before it was sent
and had marked out many of the clauses
of mine and had inserted in Mis own
handwriting a great deal of matter 1
knew- nothing about.
'“I went to the President and he of
fered no explanation why he had not
consulted me about making the changes
after he had OK'd the note. I saw
there was infilling for me to do but re
sign. which I did. As the President did
not give out wtiy I had tendered my resig
nation. I did not think l should do so.
The world has the idea I resigned on ac
count of the President's note to Ger
many. Let it think so." •
Bryan's resignation was aeceepted
June 8. 31)15. and Robert Lansing was
appointed in his place.

From a technical point of view the
